Booker’s Soul Food Starters Brings Families Together During This Socially Distant Holiday Season

Macedonia, OH — November 12, 2020: Booker’s Soul Food Starter Kits, founded earlier this year by husband and wife team Claude and Crystal Booker, transform cherished family recipes into pantry-ready seasoning kits that make cooking southern sides simple. No need to worry about too much salt, or too little time. Add fresh produce and prepare home-cooked sides in a few easy steps. The seasoning kits simplify macaroni and cheese, collard greens, peach cobbler, and candied yams. Pre-order all four seasoning kits online at Booker’s Soul Food Starter Kits make excellent gifts and will be included in the small Business Majority’s 2020 Holiday Gift Guide. 

This holiday season, unite your family through authentic soul food flavor. Home chefs only need to add peaches, a few yams, a bunch of collard greens, or elbow noodles and shredded cheese to create delicious sides. Each seasoning kit comes with six individual packets that can be shared with friends and family members. The flexible recipes meet everyone’s dietary needs and preferences. Booker leveraged his classical culinary training to develop satisfying recipes that celebrate his family’s traditional meals. Although we cannot gather around the table for Thanksgiving or winter holidays this year, families and friends can send each other Booker’s Soul Food Starter Kits to enjoy the same flavorful meals together from afar. Booker encourages families to share a packet and virtually gather around the table while delighting in the same delicious meal.

“We aim to bring families back to the table to enjoy home-cooked meals with fresh ingredients,” Claude Booker, co-founder of Booker’s Soul Food Starters explained. “Crystal and I founded Booker’s Soul Food Starter Kits to embrace our heritage, share some soul food, and uplift our community.” Booker is one of a few Black food brand-founders in America. The kits both expand the diversity of representation in the grocery aisle and broaden the availability of delicious soul food to those who miss home or want to try something new.

Booker’s Soul Food Starters also make a difference beyond the dinner table. Booker and Crystal believe in promoting education as well as sharing wholesome food. The purchase of each kit contributes to Booker’s Soul Foods Foundation to bolster Black education. The foundation, housed in the Spartanburg County Foundation, donates to 501c3 charities that support Black education causes and programs throughout America.

Booker’s Soul Food Starters bring soul food front-and-center while promoting American values of family, community, education, and equality. Home chefs can share a packet, warm up with some soul food, and know that their money supports educational opportunities for Black Americans. Booker’s Soul Food Starters are genuinely good for the soul.  Packages can be purchased at
